Although there are many amazing places in this paradise, here are the 3 best of the Riviera Maya.

Considered the heart of the Riviera Maya, the beat comes from the steady stream of locals and tourists, making it the most cosmopolitan city of the Riviera Maya. One of the main attractions, besides its beaches, is its gigantic Fifth Avenue where you will find everything from colorful hanging lamps to exclusive luxury brand stores. You can't miss the diverse restaurants and bars that add flavor to the party with their lively atmosphere and music.

So much can be said about this ancient Mayan port, it's truly unforgivable if you take the time to visit. Follow the traces of history through the archeological ruins and experience where mysticism and mystery collide. Besides the incredible view of the Caribbean Sea, which is simply spectacular, one can not help but cool off at the beach located right next to the ruins. The artesian market is an adventure in itself; Here you'll find everything from t-shirts, hats, and souvenir beach coverups along with your photo of Tulum.
